Lancashire vs Durham, North Group
With only six runs needed off the last over, 19-year-old Liam Trevaskis, who bats at No.4, picked three wickets and conceded just a run to hand Durham a thrilling four-run win over Lancashire. The defeat comes despite Alex Davies’s aggressive 33-ball 53 at the top.
Jordan Clark’s dismissal in the penultimate over by Nathan Rimmington, when he was 16 off 15 balls, proved crucial as Lancashire faltered in a chase they should have completed. Will Smith had earlier braved some canny bowling from Zahir Khan and Danny Lamb, both of whom picked two wickets apiece, to sneak Durham to 154 with 37 off 32 balls.
Brief Scores: Durham 154/7 in 20 overs (Will Smith 37*; Zahir Khan 2-19, Danny Lamb 2-19) beat Lancashire 150/9 in 20 overs (Alex Davies 53; Liam Trevaskis 4-16) by 4 runs.
Glamorgan vs Essex, South Group
A six-run defeat margin flatters to deceive Essex, who needed 24 runs off the final over. Ravi Bopara, unbeaten on 45 off 20 balls, hit two fours and a six in the last over to take the score close but that was it. Six runs were needed off the final ball but Michael Hogan kept it to a single with Bopara on strike.
Colin Ingram’s 47-ball 89 earlier proved crucial in Glamorgan racking up 198 in 20 overs, with Graham Wagg providing the late flourish with an unbeaten 53 off 28 balls. Chasing, Essex’s Varun Chopra hit a fifty but Ryan ten Doeschate’s wicket in the 14th over led to regular wickets, something even Bopara’s blitz couldn’t offset.
Brief Scores: Glamorgan 198/7 in 20 overs (Colin Ingram 89; Matthew Quinn 3-61) beat Essex 192/6 in 20 overs (Varun Chopra 54; Timm van der Gugten 2-33) by 6 runs.
